• Xbox One News: SEVEN new Backwards Compatibility games


    UPDATE ONE: Two more Xbox One Backwards Compatibility titles have been confirmed by Microsoft and BioWare today, bringing the recent announcements to seven titles.

    Both Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 are now playable via the BC program. The announcement was made during the official unveiling of the new Mass Effect Andromeda trailer, with the game's release date also confirmed for Spring 2017.

    "The Mass Effect 2 and 3 are now backwards-compatible on Xbox One," the announcement from BioWare reads.

    "Just pop in your original disks and relive the series that started it all; or—if you’re subscribed to the EA Access Vault and Origin Access Vault, you can access the games there.

    "And while you don’t need to have played the trilogy to enjoy Mass Effect: Andromeda, you can still take the Normandy for one last ride."

    It was all part of the N7 celebrations and is probably at least two of the titles Xbox chief Phil Spencer was hinting at last week.

    "Thanks, BC [backward compatibility] team just sent me their planned November list, looks to be a great BC month, landing some of top fan requests,” he told fans on Twitter.

    New games have been added to the list of recent Xbox One Backwards Compatibility titles launched by Microsoft.

    LIMBO and Blue Dragon were confirmed ready to play by Xbox’s Larry Hryb this week, adding to the recent releases of RAGE, Killer Is Dead and Shred Nebula

    And they're are still other titles that have been revealed for the program that have yet to be launched, including the Bioshock trilogy and Skate 3.

    A big hint was dropped by Xbox One chief Phil Spencer on what other projects might follow those listed above.

    November was the month Microsoft started their Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program and now they’re looking to celebrate with some major releases.

    It’s unclear what titles Spencer is talking about, the remaining top-requested games include Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

    There’s also the likes of Mass Effect 2, as well as GTA IV and Batman: Arkham City. Call of Duty titles dominate the official top ten, meaning an inclusion from that franchise could prove popular.

    Spencer could have also been referencing Skate 3 and the Bioshock trilogy, they’re also quite popular BC requests and fans have been waiting almost a year for their launch.

    If you own any of the newly announced titles digitally, they should pop up in your Games App library. For those who bought physical copies, the old Xbox 360 discs can be popped into your console and downloaded.

    The PS4 Pro is set to launch very soon and will add to the newly enlarged console market, which already includes the PS4 Slim and Xbox One S.

    While not on the same level in terms of power, the Xbox One S v PS4 Pro looks set to be the ongoing console battle, that is until the Xbox One Scorpio is launched.

    However, even when this new gaming machine does arrive in late 2017, it doesn't mean you should expect Oculus Rift or HTC Vive support straight away.
